Nicholas Coffyn, of Brixton (one account says Butler's Parish), in Devonshire, in his will, dated September 12, 1613, and proved November 3, 1613, mentions his wife, Joan, and sons Peter, Nicholas, Tristram, John, and daughter Anne. He was the grandfather of the emigrant to New England.

Peter Coffyn, of Brixton, in his will, dated December 1, 1627, and proved March 13, 1628, provides that his wife, Joan (Thember) shall have possession of the land during her life, and then the said property shall go to his son and heir, Tristram, "who is to be provided for according to his degree and calling." His son John is to have certain property when he becomes 20 years of age. He mentions his daughters Joan, Deborah, Eunice and Mary, and refers to his tenement in Butler's Parish called Silferhay. He was the father of the emigrant.

John Coffyn, of Brixton, an uncle of the emigrant, who died without issue, in his will, dated January 4, 1628, and proved April 3, 1628, appoints his nephew, Tristram Coffyn, his executor, and gives legacies to all of Tristram's sisters, all under 12 years of age.

Nicholas Coffyn, the grandfather of Tristram, was probably born, about the middle of the sixteenth century, in the reign of Edward . (1550). He lived to the end of the reign of the Tudors, and saw the reign of the Stuarts commenced in the person of James VI. of Scotland and I. of England. He died in the reign of James I. (1613). His eldest son, Peter, doubtless succeeded to his estates; and his youngest son, John, acquired some estate, as he made our Tristram his executor. The other sons, Nicholas and Tristram, have not been accounted for, neither has his daughter Anne.

Peter Coffyn, the father of Tristram, must have been born during the reign of Queen Elizabeth, about the year 1580. He died about the close of the year 1627 or early in the year 1628. At present we know of but little more of Tristram's father than we do of his grandfather, save that he married Joan Thember (or Thumber) and had two sons and four daughters, of whom Tristram was the eldest, the other son, John, having died in Plymouth Fort, England, after receiving a mortal wound.

Tristram Coffyn was born at Brixton, near Plymouth, county of Devon, England, during the reign of James I., in the year 1605, as previously stated. He married Dionis Stevens, daughter of Robert Stevens, Esq., of Brixton, about the year 1630. The particular causes or circumstances which induced his emigration to America have been a subject of profound study and mature deliberation. If we look at the contemporaneous history of England we shall find that the time which covers Tristram's mature life in England, about fifteen years, marks a most eventful period—the moment when intellectual freedom was claimed unconditionally by Englishmen as an inalienable right, and when ecclesiastical forms were not spared by the revolutions of the time.

attached document quote

"COFFIN

Nicholas and Joan Coffin and their children, Peter, Tristram Nicholas and Anne, were born in the Coffin homestead, in the praish of Bixton, five miles from Plymouth, Devonshire, England. The homestead had been in the possession of the Coffin family for five hundred years when Tristram Coffin, the progenitor of the American Coffins, was born, and it is now (1908), after eight hundred years, still in possession of a descendant, John Pine Coffin, who in 1907 had a family of ten children under its roof. As the mother of the immigrant Tristram came with the family to America representing a generation, we name her husband, although he never saw America, as the first generation, in the order of our custom. He was a man of wealth and belonged to the gentry of the shire, and his eldest son, Tristram, inherited his estate.

(I) Peter Coffin, son of Nicholas and Jane Coffin, was born on the Coffin estate at Brixton, Devonshire, England, about 1580, and died there in 1627-28. He married Joan, or Joanna, Thember, and their six children were born and baptized in the Parish of Brixton, Devonshire, England, in the order following:

  1. Tristram (q.v.), b. 1605.
  2. John, b. abt. 1608. He was a soldier and died in the service from a moral wound received in battle during the four years siege of the fortified town during the civil war, and he died within the walls of the town about 1642.
  3. Joan, born in England about 1609, probably died there.
  4. Deborah, died probably in England.
  5. Eunice, born in England, came to Massachusetts Bay Colony with her parents; married William Butter and died in 1648.
  6. Mary, married Alexander Adams, and had children: Mary, Susannah, John and Samuel. She died in 1677, or thereabouts.

Widow Joan, with her children, Tristram, Eunice, and Mary, and her two sons-in-law, husbands of her daughters who were married in England, her daughter-in-law, Dionis, and five grandchildren, came to Salisbury in 1642. She died in Boston in May, 1661, aged seventy-six years, and in the notice of her funeral it is quaintly stated that the Rev. Mr. Wilson "embalmed her memory." "
